One thing that can cause this error is when the OS permissions prevent
Apache writing to the repository.

The underlying error on the server is:

 "Can't open file '.../db/txn-current-lock': Permission denied"

but it looks like we have a problem with the error reporting. I don't
see anything logged in the apache log, and wireshark shows the response

HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error

That "D:(null)" is suspicious.
